The Oracle ACE Program recognizes members of the Oracle community for the technical expertise and their willingness to share that expertise. There are three levels to the program:
The people listed below have been busy doing what ACEs do, sharing their expertise through social media, blog posts, conference presentations, and all the other activities reflected in the ACEs in Action Blog. For the ACE Directors and ACEs, that means they have earned a level-up from their previous status. For the ACE Associates, that means they've entered into the program, and are now on the path to move up through the ranks.
This batch of ACEs have been confirmed in their new status in the second quarter of 2019. If you know any of these people, or if you see them at a conference (there will be many ACEs at Oracle Code One in September), a little respect is due, don't you think?
